NORWALK, Conn. Looking for something to do this weekend? Here are some things happening in Norwalk over the next two days:
Saturday, March 10
Noon: Author Bob Shea will read to children at the Stepping Stones Museum for Children, who will then enjoy a Jelly Bean Dance Party and book signing.
2 p.m.: Bells will ring at the Stepping Stones Museum for Children in an unusual form of movie madness: a bell choir performing popular soundtracks from film favorites. Free with museum admission.
4 p.m.: Be a hero for kids with cancer and donate to the cause while you watch locals get their hair shaved for St. Baldrick's Day. That includes former town clerk Andy Garfunkel and other members of the Norwalk Exchange Club, as well as employees of O'Neills Pub, where the event is held, at 93 Main St.
7:30 p.m.: The Fairfield County Chorale performs the world premiere of Thomas Cabaniss' "My Song Is A Fire" and Luigi Cherubini's Requiem in C Minor at Concert Hall. The chorale consists of more than 100 auditioned singers, representing a range of ages and music backgrounds, who are joined for the show by soloists Jennifer Greene, soprano; Alok Kumar, tenor; and Andrew Cummings, baritone; and concertmaster Krystof Witek, also the concertmaster of the Greenwich Symphony and frequent guest violinist with the Metropolitan Opera orchestra. Tickets are $25 in advance, $30 at the door, general admission.
Sunday, March 11
3 p.m.: A one-hour documentary , co-produced by Norwalk Don Sikorski, explores what some have described as a morally brutalizing environment of war in a large, full production sound stage off Wall St., behind the Garden Cinema. "Article 32" uncovers what happened in the early morning hours of April 2006 in Iraq, and the subsequent NCIS murder investigation. Sikorski is a Norwalk High and New York University graduate, working to shine a light on the gray area between established rules of engagement and the need to "do what you have to do" to come home alive.
7:15 p.m.: The Norwalk High School Principal Orchestra will join the Ithaca College Symphony Orchestra for a free performance at Concert Hall, 125 East Ave. Tickets are free and are first come, first served.
